Advantages: gret picture, sound and looks
Disadvantages: digital tv guide is quite hard to use
I bought this tv from currys last summer and have been more than pleased with it since. I didnt actually go out looking for a tv but saw it and had to have it, especially when I saw that they were only asking £499 for it,....for the size, picture quality and the brand its a complete bargain. Not sure if it is still retailing at this price however I would say anything up to £600 would be reasonable.
It has more than enough features, 2 hdmi connections, 2 scarts, and composite connections. Ive also used the S-video connection to hook it up to my lap top and watch things like BBC i-player through it, handy if you havent got sky plus. The picture is remarkably clearin this option , a little bit more blocky than normal but nothing to complain about.
Set up is really easy, and the remote is clear and simple to use. Ther sound quality is also pretty good, I have noticed on some plasmas and lcd tvs that the sound quality is pretty poor however the speakers on this tv are more than adequet with a good clear, powerful sound.
The only thing I have had a little trouble with is the built in digital tv programme guide. Its a little cumbersome and can be difficult to navigate your way through, not as simple as say Sky's guide.
Summary: Awesome tv
